The S20 is such an historic engine, it would be shame not to bolt them onto a suitable donor...... :twocents:
Even if it's on an engine, whether it's in a car or not.......

Finally added a (hotwheels) F355 to the collection. Got it home and swapped out the stock wheels for some 1:24 Jada RC wheels on Bburago tires.

Another photo of my Solido rally VW Beetle upgrades.
New seats more in keeping with those in use during the 1970's.
4 point seat harnesses fitted (Legend Miniatures item PH015) to both seats.
It seems Porsche VW Austria - the team who ran the cars (and were winners of the 1970 Le Mans with a 917K) entered them in FIA group 2.
As such, the cars were required to have all four seats fitted - even though the rear seats were often removed by teams depending on the event.
Also added to the interior is a co-drivers foot rest/brace and fire extinguisher.
I am considering a helmet storage piece with helmets mounted.

Legende miniatures p104.
€2 each.
I painted mine automotive gloss red (after soaking it in soapy water with added vinegar).
The metal straps are thin strips of ultra gloss chrome bare metal foil.
The decal is from the spares box.

I've fallen in love with this BMW. But since there is no real model like this, I'm pretty sure that there will never be a 1/18 version..so I've have to do it myself..with the help of MIY Models.
